Don't be fooled by the name of this establishment, I thought I was going to some deli-cafe. Oh no! Very plush inside and food is on the pricey side but you get exactly what you pay for, I couldn't fault anything. Chicken roast, massive Yorkshire pud, delicious red wine jus, cinnamon parsnips, sticky toffee pud and brownie were divine (our... More

I wish I loved more locally to this wonderful place. Every visit is just as a wonderful. The food is always delicious and the service is always fantastic. They're so friendly and unobtrusive. Always so accommodating. The menu has so many classic and tasty options. I always look forward to an opportunity to eat there.

I came with my partner & we both had the potato, onion & mushroom pie. It was absolutely delicious and the venue is very friendly too. We also played scrabble!

I took my wife and family to the Village Kitchen in trendy Walthamstow Village a quirky enclave of E17. A warm welcome from attentive friendly staff, great service accompanied by sumptuous tasty food. My wife approved and not a murmur of discontentment from our two offspring. Highly recommended. Would go again and again.

I am super fussy when it comes to a restaurant Sunday roast. Not many pass my high standards but I must say this was the business. I had the chicken liver pâté to start which was delicious. The pork belly main was divine. A good sized portion with perfectly cooked potatoes and vegetables. My only gripe was the gravy was... More

Booked a few weeks in advance for a birthday meal. They made sure I was aware that it was a two hour slot, which was fine because they were very nice about it, but I was a little surprised as that's an unusual move for a small independent. Then we realised why. Sunday lunchtime and it was full to capacity... More

Visited last night for dinner with friends - we've been before and I'm pleased to say it was as good as ever! The food was absolutely delicious, the service was impeccable and the ambiance just right. So nice to have such a fabulous restaurant within walking distance.
